Overcoming the Silence: How Speaking Out Made Me A Better Person

All over the world, when the docuseries SEDUCED: Inside the NXIVM Cult, airs, Twitter becomes a sea of people who would “NEVER join a cult” and would “NEVER fall for any type of coercive control.”
I can always tell when an episode is airing. I follow the hashtags for the show, and those nights bring a new influx of “I can’t believe they fell for any of that” or “There’s no way in hell I would ever wear a sash.” The same people who stand on the edge of the Grand Canyon and feel that nothing could be powerful enough to have carved such a wonder.
